For the 20th time, Maxine and I have been on our annual pilgrimage to the ‘New Wine’ church conference. Every year I think I’m getting too old to put our tent up, but really it’s not that difficult. Now we’re home I’m writing looking at a lounge full of camping gear waiting to go back in the loft. At least it is all dry as the weather was kind to us! As always, it was an excellent week.
Just a few shots of the miniature railway that is on the Showground, run by the East Somerset Society of Model & Experimental Engineers, taken near our tent. It’s just like the big railways though, looking down the line waiting for the train to arrive. Most of the main line is dual gauge 5″ and 7¼” gauges (just a little larger than ‘N’ gauge). Each year at New Wine, ESSMEE open up the railway for the day and offer rides for all and sundry. Read more about this little railway at http://www.essmee.org.uk/ .
